WizKids will feature two of the most popular characters in comics, Batman and Superman, in a number of new HeroClix products scheduled to release in February. The planned products will include tie-ins to both the comics and the upcoming film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
On the comic book side, four products are planned: a Booster Brick, a Fast Forces pack, a Dice & Token Pack and a Release Day Organized Play Kit.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Superman/Batman Booster Brick is based on the classic team-up comics. The series features Superman, Batman, and many of their allies and enemies including the Metal Men, the Doom Patrol, and mystical and supernatural characters. Each booster holds five figures out of the total set of 70, which is comprised of 16 common, 16 uncommon, 16 rare, 12 super rare, 6 chase, and 4 prime figures. MSRP is $12.99 per booster, and 10 boosters are included in each Booster Brick.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Superman/Batman “World’s Finest” Fast Forces package will include six HeroClix figures, all with new dials, plus an exclusive 3D object. The figures will be Superman, Batman, Poison Ivy, Nightwing, Toymaster, and Lex Luthor. MSRP is $16.99.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Superman/Batman Dice & Token Pack includes eight accessories for use with the HeroClix game: two custom dice with the logos of Batman and Superman and six action tokens. MSRP is $9.99.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Release Day Organized Play Kit includes prizes and resources for stores that want to host a release day event. Each kit has three copies of a limited edition HeroClix figure and card, five copies of a double-sided game map, and a sheet of rules and instructions. Like all HeroClix OP kits, this kit is not for resale.
There are also two products (3 SKUs) tied to the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film releasing in February.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Gravity Feed includes both a Version A SKU for the hobby market and a Version B SKU for mass market retail. Each of the two versions will offer 13 different models, all representing characters from the movie. In that set there will be 8 common figures, 4 rare figures, and 1 chase figure. The common figures will overlap, but the rare and chase figures from each version will be exclusive to its market SKU. Each countertop display comes with 24 foil packs, each containing a single figure, and MSRP is $2.99 per pack.
The DC Comics HeroClix: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Fast Forces pack featuring six characters from the movie: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Mercy Graves, and Lex Luthor. MSRP is $16.99.
